Significant flight delays for Alaska Airlines, 15 Boise flights affected
SEATTLE (AP) -- Company officials say a computer problem is causing significant delays for all Alaska Airlines flights.
An airline spokeswoman asked for patience Monday as the delays led to long lines of passengers at the Seattle airport where Alaska Airlines is the largest carrier.
Spokeswoman Bobbie Egan says the problem is with a data connection and that technicians are working to fix it.
The airline has been unable to check in passengers for any flight since 7:40 a.m. Monday.
According to Patti Miller with the Boise Airport, 15 of the 16 daily Alaska flights have been delayed. Passengers are waiting at the airport for more information.
